Neumann KM 184 D Miniature Digital Microphone

Neumann's modular KM 184 D miniature microphone system is a further development of their KM 100 series.  The passive capsule combines with the digital (KM D) output stage in accordance with the AES 42 standard.  The considerably smaller microphone capsules and an extensive program of accessories permit excellent adaptation of the microphone system to a wide range of applications.

Through the use of the most up-to-date electronic components the system offers many electro-acoustic and operational advantages, such as lower self-noise, a wider dynamic range and very high immunity to electromagnetic interference.  The acoustics of the capsules were taken from the proven KM 100 system.

The KM D digital output stage converts the signal from the capsule directly into a digital signal.  The result is an AES/EBU signal with 24 bits and a large dynamic range.  The integrated digital signal processor (DSP) permits remote control of the microphones, including the digital gain, pre-attenuation (6 dB, 12 dB or 18 dB) and low-cut filter (0 Hz, 40 Hz, 80 Hz or 160 Hz).  An integrated peak limiter and compressor/limiter with additional de-esser function prevents any overloading of the audio signal.

All accessories can be used in combination with both the digital (KM D) and the analog (KM A) output stages.

The modular solution permits the microphone capsule to be separated from the output stage by a distance of up to 100 m.  The LC 4 microphone cable with a length of 5 or 10 meters is available (not included) as a standard solution.  Alternatively, capsule extensions of different lengths, swivel joints and stand mounts, etc.(none of which are included), can be used for a flexible system setup.

Neumann KM 184 D Features:

  • Miniature microphones with 8 exchangeable capsules, compatible with the analog miniature microphone system KM A
  • Set includes windshield and clamp
  • Extensive accessories
  • True to the original: The satisfaction of recording the uncolored original, with no "bottlenecks" between the capsule and the recording system.
  • True Conversion: The guarantee of having one of the best A/D converters available.
  • True handling safety: Anti-clipping processing ensures handling safety, and reduces stress.
  • Reduced time requirements and personnel costs, particularly due to faster post production processing.
  • Lower investment costs, since separate A/D converters and preamps are no longer needed. This also means space and weight savings (e.g. in the OB van).
